CSS hosted the inaugural Summer Leadership Academy on July 25 – July 29 at Bercel Kastély in Nógrád County, Hungary. Over the course of five days and four nights, twenty-five selected participants gained an invaluable theoretical grounding in philosophy, economics, politics, and law, while also taking part in workshops and simulations. The Academy participants were selected from among 140 highly qualified applicants mostly from Hungary, but also from Central and Eastern Europe, the UK and the USA.
The international faculty and speakers at the Academy included: philosopher Roger Scruton (Oxford University, American Enterprise Institute), Tibor Machan (Chapman University, Hoover Institution), Roger Pilon (Cato Institute), Juliana Geran Pilon (Institute of World Politics), Peter Záboji (European Entrepreneurship Foundation), András Jakab (University of Heidelberg), Sam Potolicchio (Georgetown University), Thierry Baudet (University of Leiden), Jim Kelly (Federalist Society), and Ferenc Horkay Horcher (Pázmány Péter Catholic University).
The Academy was made possible by generous sponsorships from The Federalist Society, MVM, MOL, Ernst and Young, OTP Bank, and Porsche Hungária.
